Title: Analysis of ways to codify customary communal shifting cultivation land in Myanmar
Date of publication: July 2017
Description/subject: XVI Biennial Conference of the IASC, Utrecht July 2017 Track 8: What Role can the Commons play in the Struggle for Land Rights, in particular of Indigenous Communities?..."Research into the Commons can contribute to the struggle for land rights of indigenous communities, if the research can suggest the means for the indigenous communities to articulate their claims and seek ways to have their land protected under statutory law in a way that does not distort their traditional tenure arrangements. The present research looks at this struggle for land rights in Myanmar to show how the application of the Theory of the Commons and its guiding principles can prepare a stepping stone for the preparation of procedures that eventually could become embedded in a legal and regulatory framework for land registration of customary communal agricultural land of upland ethnic groups..."

Title: Children as Beneficiaries and Participants in Development Programs: A Case Study in Burma (Myanmar)
Date of publication: June 2007
Description/subject: Abstract: "This study seeks to understand the dynamics and processes of community development programs for children in Burma (Myanmar). It examines the ethical dimensions of children’s participation, critiques the extent of participation of young people in community development activity, explores the barriers and avenues for increased participation and presents recommendations based on lived experience which can be used to formulate policies that will enable/encourage greater participation. The development industry reaches to almost all areas of the globe and is not confined by national boundaries, ethnicity, age, gender or other social stratification. One of the most topical issues in contemporary development regards the rights of the child. It is an area of increasing interest to United Nations agencies and to human rights groups such as Amnesty International and the International Labour Organisation. In addition, a number of international programs have been created to focus upon improving the global situation of children, such as the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and Mandela and Machel's "Global Movement for Children." Such interest in the situation of children, however, rarely includes discussion of the ethical issues involved in the construction of children as appropriate subjects of development. Even rarer is examination or discussion of the culturally and historically contingent nature of assumptions about children and childhood that are built into many programs that focus upon children. The implications of applying programs and techniques that incorporate "Western" or "generic" understandings of children and childhood upon children from non­ Western nations should be part of such discussions. Development programs increasingly employ national workers, not only as stakeholders and participants, but also as initiators of programs and as directors of resource allocation. However, with this growing trend of the participation of ‘beneficiaries’ of development programs in identifying needs and planning and implementing solutions, the voices of children have, until recently, been quiet."

Title: International Migration, Rights, Social Protection & Governance: Key challenges to our common future
Date of publication: 30 October 2014
Description/subject: "Prepared by Patrick Taran, President, website: www.globalmigrationpolicy.org email: taran@globalmigrationpolicy.org This paper does not necessarily reflect collective views of GMPA or of its member Associates."..."This address reviews the bigger picture, outlining what's going down and why. The world of migration is being transformed; migration is transforming the world. Those who defend a rights and social protection centred approach need to fully assess reality to know what to do, and do it right.... In broad terms, migration is key to sustaining the world of work in the Twenty-First Century. Migration today is fundamentally about internationalized labour and skills mobility in a globalized world. As Ban Ki Moon (Secretary General of the United Nations) said, we're in the age of mobility. 90% of all migration –of all migrants-- is bound up in employment outcomes, in economic activity, meaning people who are either working or dependent on those who are. Migration is about people, and in a world dominated by a capitalist mode of economic relations, governing migration is inevitably about protection of people, about decent work for all, about social protection and ultimately about justice in our societies, for all people whether they are working or not. Migration today is key to the viability of labour markets worldwide. It is key to obtaining return on capital in a globalized capitalist economy. It is key to development yes, but especially, the viability, indeed the very survival of the developed economies depends on migration..."

Title: Migration, droits de l’homme et gouvernance - Guide pratique à l’usage des parlementaires
Date of publication: 16 October 2014
Description/subject: "Apporter une réponse censée, pondérée et éclairée à la migration exige la participation active des parlementaires. En premier lieu, ces derniers ont la charge d’adopter en matière de migration des lois de nature à donner un tour concret aux obligations souscrites par les Etats en vertu des traités internationaux, en particulier dans le domaine des droits de l’homme et des normes du travail. A l’instar de l’exécutif, les parlementaires peuvent, et doivent, s’engager en faveur de politiques efficaces et équitables permettant de tirer le meilleur parti possible de la migration tout en s’attaquant aux difficultés réelles rencontrées par les pays d’origine, de transit et d’accueil, ainsi que par les migrants. Dans cette publication, destinée à aider les parlementaires à atteindre cet objectif, l’Union interparlementaire, le Bureau international du Travail et le Haut-Commissariat des Nations Unies aux droits de l’homme offrent des réponses à des questions fondamentales en matière de migration, parmi lesquelles l’origine du phénomène et les politiques et pratiques susceptibles de constituer des solutions satisfaisantes, mais aussi les difficultés auxquelles se heurtent les migrants et les pays en matière de prospérité nationale, de développement et de cohésion sociale. Il propose une approche pondérée, de nature à permettre l’application concrète de lois et politiques tenant compte des droits de l’homme des migrants et améliorant la gouvernance de la migration..."

Title: Sea levels could rise by more than three metres, shows new study
Date of publication: 25 April 2017
Description/subject: "Global sea levels could rise by more than three metres – over half a metre more than previously thought – this century alone, according to a new study co-authored by a University of Southampton scientist. An international team including Sybren Drijfhout, Professor in Physical Oceanography and Climate Physics, looked at what might happen if carbon dioxide emissions continue unabated. Using new projections of Antarctic mass loss and a revised statistical method, they concluded that a worst-case scenario of a 2.5 to three-metre sea level rise was possible by 2100.

Title: Building Critical Mass for Peace in Myanmar (English and Burmese)
Date of publication: 29 June 2017
Description/subject: Executive Summary: "Myanmar’s latest peace conference, held on 24-29 May 2017, made welcome progress. Following a deal brokered by China on the eve of the meeting, more armed groups came to Naypyitaw than expected. On the final day, they agreed on 37 “principles” for a future peace accord, including a key provision that the state will be a federal democracy. Yet despite these steps forward, fundamental questions remain regarding where the peace process is heading and how many armed groups are ready to participate. Without new momentum and broader participation, a negotiated end to the conflict will remain elusive. Until just days before the conference, the dynamics appeared much bleaker. The event had been delayed by three months as the government struggled to convince more armed groups to sign the Nationwide Ceasefire Agreement (NCA). Only a few of the planned subnational preparatory dialogues had been held, and others – involving the Shan and Rakhine armed groups – had been blocked by the authorities, adding to frustration. In a further setback, in April the powerful United Wa State Party (UWSP) convened a summit of seven north-east-based armed groups. They issued a statement rejecting the current National Ceasefire Agreement text – an accord signed in 2015 by eight armed groups and the government that paved the way for political talks – and announcing a new alliance, the Federal Political Negotiation and Consultative Committee (FPNCC, “Wa alliance”). A deadlock appeared inevitable since the government and military continued to insist that only by signing the existing ceasefire agreement could armed groups join the peace process. What would have been a high-profile failure of Aung San Suu Kyi’s signature initiative was only avoided through Beijing’s last-minute shuttle diplomacy. After obtaining concessions from the Myanmar government and military, a Chinese envoy convinced representatives of the seven north-eastern armed groups to attend the conference. As a result, fifteen of 21 armed groups were present for the opening – the eight that signed the ceasefire agreement and the seven in the new Wa alliance – a symbolically important win for the government. Beyond symbolism, this also set an important precedent by allowing three previously-excluded groups – the Kokang, Palaung and Arakan armies – to join negotiations. It also could open up new channels of communication with groups in the Wa alliance. Yet progress should not be overstated. The Wa alliance groups attended the opening session and dinner but were not permitted to participate in substantive sessions and returned to Kunming two days before the end of the conference. They remain unwilling to sign the current ceasefire agreement and the government remains unwilling to revise it. It is unclear how much appetite there is on all sides for concessions needed to bring these groups into the peace process. Discussions with the armed groups that signed the ceasefire agreement also were far from smooth. Key “principles” related to self-determination and the possibility for states to have their own constitutions within a future federal structure could not be agreed as groups opposed the quid pro quo requirement that they reject any possibility of secession. This failure to achieve what should have been an acceptable compromise – state constitutions are a longstanding demand of ethnic communities Building Critical Mass for Peace in Myanmar Crisis Group Asia Report N°287, 29 June 2017 Page ii and no group wishes to secede – highlighted deficiencies in the process and lack of trust. Furthermore, the principles that were agreed were pushed through the plenary without discussion. With its last-minute intervention, China has assumed a high-profile role in the process. But the extent of its commitment remains unclear and its interests do not necessarily align with those of a robust peace process. If it stays focused only on delivering symbolic wins at critical moments, little may change. But if China is determined to see sustainable peace on its border, it can use its considerable leverage as well as sophisticated diplomacy and mediation to push all sides to compromise."
